Now that you've seen my portfolio, I want to thank you so much for taking the time to read through my objective and skills, and look at my previous work. I hope this helps you to decide if I am what you are looking for.
Thanks again & blessed wishes!Sincerely,
My reasons for desiring to specialize in diabetics and diabetic athletes is derived from the unexpected passing of my grandmother, affectionately known as "Nonnie". She was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, (Type 1), at a very young age, and over the years, suffered many health problems as a result of this disease. I know that if newer technology and better resources had been available, her quality of life would have been significantly different, and that very sad day would not have come so soon. This type of diabetes has no cure, and in our family it skips a generation. Because of this, my mother has always emphasized and stressed to my sister and I the importance of watching what we eat to keep from developing this terrible disease. But for those who already living with it, like my Nonnie, I hope to promote awareness of it's impact on life, as well as show them how what they eat can drastically change the rate at which it progresses, or possibly even clear it up all together.
My mission and goal is to build solid relationships with my clients in order to walk with them through this disease so that it does not hinder their life any more than can be prevented. I plan to give guidence in meal planning and food choices so that these people will live healthier, longer lives, as well as educate them on what it means to have diabetes and how they can live more normal lives even as a diabetic.
